Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer - Altered Skin, followed by a Q&A


In a bedazzling mix of comedy, theatre and dance, Shane Shambhu reveals his journey from a ‘fat kid’ in the cultural melting pot of East London to international performer.

From being an unlikely Indian-dance student to a ‘rude boy’, and a marketing manager to international performer, his story reflects on how race, language, cultures and identity have defined him and his career. 

Told through a fresh and captivating blend of comedy, impeccable characterisations and mesmerising dance, he rips up ideas of race, language and culture, re-imagining them to leave you with gestures of hope. 

This is no Bollywood rags to riches story; this is the real deal.
